Tips

  • Lothar

    The highlight. A view almost as famous as the bastion. The steps and the scrambling require a little skill, but also make fun for children. There are some people on the road even during the week. Those looking for loneliness, should open up more unknown areas.

    In every season you have a nice view to the opposite castle in Hohnstein and the Polenztal.

    The descent over the steps laid in the rock into the valley is very impressive.

    A great viewpoint. The descent through the breathtaking Wolf Canyon into the Polenztal should not be missed. Then the hike could then lead through the beautiful Polenztal to the fire and back over the bear catch at Hohnstein and down to the inn Polental back again.

    Very nice view. Of course you should choose a day where it is not too hazy.
